Workshop: MONTH 13: Ensuring a Smooth Transition

The Private Refugee Sponsor Network - Ontario (PRSN) invites you to the upcoming online workshop: MONTH 13: Ensuring a Smooth Transition

Have you prepared those you sponsor to transition fully and smoothly into Canadian life by Month 13? Did you meet your sponsorship goals? What were the successes, and what might you have done better? Were there challenges, and how did you address them?

Join this workshop to understand how to do a needs assessment, and how to ensure you have covered everything a sponsored family needs to know. Following the workshop, information-share with other sponsors in breakouts for 30 minutes if you'd like to gain more insight into what needs to be done.

Hear from a newcomer about his transition and participate in post-workshop discussions to connect, learn, and share.
